I love coats, but to sew one requires a significant commitment of time, energy and patience. Perhaps it is the change in the weather (or perhaps it is because I finally found a fabric that will work for this pattern!) -- but I'm finally feeling up to the task of tackling a coat project.
I've had my eye on this pattern for more than a year now. It is from Burda's September 2010 issue (I love that issue):
I finally have the fabric -- a great wool flannel coating in a dark charcoal gray that doesn't photograph very well. And I just received my first order of interfacing -- including the new sew-in hair canvas -- from Fashion Sewing Supply. I've been reading Pam's blog for quite a while, but it was SunnyGal who mentioned to me (and was so generous to give me samples!!) that the interfacing was fantastic -- so I had to give it a try.
I'm looking forward to giving this one a go!
